This is determination like we’ve never seen before. Elite Kenyan runner, Hyvon Ngetich was in the lead at the Austin Marathon this past Sunday, when she suddenly collapsed about a quarter of a mile before the finish line.
With a fierce desire to complete the race, Hyvon crawled on her hands and knees and persevered to the end, landing her in third place.
John Conley, the race director, who witnessed the triumphant finish, increased Hyvon’s prize money to what she would have won if she came in second place. “You ran the bravest race and crawled the bravest crawl I have ever seen in my life,” he said. “You have earned much honor.”
